Six people were beaten Saturday by a mob in Haridas Nagar area of New Delhi for allegedly carrying buffalo calves. The mob also reportedly vandalised the vehicles in which the calves were being carried. Delhi Police has registered an FIR and is currently investigating the scene.

Locals gathered at the spot and tried to rough up the truckers accusing them of carrying buffaloes illegally. However, policemen reached the spot on time and brought the situation under control. A case has been registered against unidentified men, police said. No arrest has been made yet in this connection.

The attack comes just a week after Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a speech, warned cow vigilantes from resorting to violence. Speaking at Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad, he said that killing for cow protection is not acceptable. “Killing people in the name of cow is unacceptable. No one has the right to take law into his/her hands. We belong to a land of non-violence. Violence is not the solution to any problem,” the Prime Minister had said. Modi said that Mahatama Gandhi would not have approved the violence in the name of cow protection.

PM Modi’s response had come after a spate of lynchings in the country, some at the hands of cow vigilante groups. In a recent incident, a 15-year old boy Junaid Khan was stabbed to death after an argument broke out between him and a group of people over seats on a Mathura-bound train in Ballabhgarh in Haryana. Junaid, who was with his two brothers at the time of the incident, was mocked by the mob over his skull cap and was called a “beef-eater”. At least five people have been arrested in the case.

    India under the animism, : Animism is the belief that everything has a soul or spirit, an anima in Latin, including animals(cow, reptiles, etc , plants, rocks, mountains, rivers, and stars. Animists believe each anima is a powerful spirit that can help or hurt them and are to be worshipped or feared or in some way attended to. Animism is a primitive religion whose adherents have for thousands of years deified animals, stars, and idols of any kind, and practiced spiritism, witchcraft, divination and astrology. They use magic, spells, enchantments, supers ions, amulets, talismans, charms, or anything that they believe will help to protect them from the evil spirits and placate the good spirits that are found everywhere in everything.The practice of animism opens a door for demons to enter into the lives of people who are deceived by the lie that is animism.The Bible condemns those who practice spiritism in very strong terms: That's why killing take place in India by Hindu radicals.

      Well done. Don't lynch the s but put the fear of God in them. If it later turns out that they were not s but honest citizens doing honest work then you be prepared to be severely punished. fair enough.

        The cow meat eaters have no soul and blood., it means no compassion. Innovative ideas of terrorism come to mind just like 9/11, 26/11, tortures of sacred Sikh Gurus etc

            Honest Citizen , in USA dog meat is not allowed because it is a pet animal. In India cow is pet and sacred animal. In USA if anybody eats it their wish let them eat. Soe people hate pig meat so do eat it and also it is banned in many OIC countries

            I support to those people who take the law to save the life of animals. I donot understand when killing of animals are so easy , then human being is also an animal . Why we shout on killing human life , SC should take cognigence on equality . There may be people who loves to eat human flesh . We defame them. If so why only to animals defined by us as per our convenience because they are weak ? Where are noble literate . If killing is permissible , it should be for all . We talk about equality but then poor unharmed animals were killed just for having fun . Why not human also . People eat dog, lizards, snakes, pig, buffalo why not human also . We have so great chef , they will prepare taste and SC condition will also honoured EQULITY Just think if ur kids get kills due to food how would u feel . Same with animals .they too have community , family, mother, father. And kids . Think pl

              shantanu dutta> You support beating people violating the law and beating people up, then it would be just as fine for someone to beat you up if they feel you violate some value, ethic or belief they hold dear.

                  All those commenting about religion below in the comments are people who are blind deaf and s. No where does the article call out that the truckers were Muslim but s always drag things into religious maligning. Guys read the article and then comment. When people comment without reading they end up with their feet in mouth.
